Re: Aussie Belle

Hi Tony, I will be holding onto the sewing machine as I have a car project that I will be doing the interior. Plus some cash jobs for other people. Anyway, Yesterday I picked up my new fuel tank (my other tank cracked along one of the welds) was never very happy with the original tank as it was made...

Re: Riviera

Hi Simon,

I have built a 23ft Belle Isle, I used LVL timbers for my stringers.

I purchased from a hardware store (make sure the glue is A Bond glue)

They are nice and strong and straight.

My boat is complete and on the water.

My build can be found under Aussie Belle

Re: Engine hatch and decking

Hi Tony, I planned over the hatch and then cut out after. I did the cut out of the hatch before I did the caulking that way it was easy to see and mark where I had to cut. Mine was a very crucial cut as I don’t have hatch trimming to cover the cuts, was a scary moment with the jig saw free hand cutt...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Tom I messed around with angles for steering wheel and seat, heights etc for a few days until I felt what was comfortable for me(remember you will be the one doing most of the driving) I also made the seat base with some angle as well so ya bum sits back in the seat. Throttle control on mine is in a...

Re: Aussie Belle

Sorry for delayed response Tony, I think we might be missing the Bribe show this year(along with everything else)! You might get finished by the time this virus and social distancing is done with. We got a bit of a hail storm yesterday, mostly about golf ball size being the biggest, but very rare to...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Great work Carl,

Can’t wait to see this boat when completed.

A lot of detail going into the fit out of the interior and can’t wait to see the finished product.

Re: Florida Barrelback

Hi,

Good to see another Barrelback started.

I also used a seamstress wheel to transfer all my patterns, works well.

Any questions ask away! There are plenty of Barrelback builders on the forum and a lot of valuable knowledge

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Lee,

My old man had bought one and we had nothing but trouble, went down to the local hardware and bought a cheapy and it lasted the
duration of the Build.

Like anything there is bound to be that one in every thousand that may have an issue, seems like I always end up with that one!

Re: Rub Rail Bending

Tom, I actually used my panel beating hammer and dollies to do mine, it does mark the stainless and I did have to sand and repolish in those areas but it worked well. I would place a dolly in the vice on the bench with the desired profile upwards and then go to town on the rub rail, my rubrails are ...

Re: Modifying the Tahoe 23 design

Being "boatless" isn't all that bad" Said NOBODY EVER!! :D :D I have a boat now but it killed me everytime I seen a new launch on the forum. I did plan for a reasonably quick build but ended up being 8 years. I agree, don't try and rush the build, build what you want and enjoy it. I will be starting...
